Family Fun Hikes in Van Cortlandt Park. For 2 to 6 year olds and their adult(s). Led by a Van Cortlandt Park Alliance educator! Golds, reds, oranges and purples are all of the vibrant colors we will see during our stroll on our next Family Hike. Come out and celebrate all of the beautiful colors of fall by creating your very own leaf Mandala/Rangoli. Rangoli or Mandala is an art form from India that uses repeating circular patterns on tabletops and floors. During the month of Diwali in Indian homes, Rangoli designs are used to decorate entrances to welcome in good luck and fortune to the family. So gather as many leaves during our walk and get creative as we explore the Northwest woods!
